The Perfect Plants For Your Florida Garden

Romantic beaches, Kennedy Space Center and Mickey Mouse&Florida has long been a popular vacation destination. Ponce de Leon also searched Florida for the Fountain of Youth, which may explain its attraction as a retirement state as well. Whatever the attraction (and there are certainly many to choose from), its easy to see why The Sunshine State has become the third most populous state in the nation. With so much to recommend it, including a vast array of gardening opportunities, its easy to see why Nature Hills Nursery has long been a popular choice among Florida gardeners for quality products and service.

Choosing A Tree For Your Florida Home

The state tree of Florida is the Cabbage Palmetto, but many would argue that it should be the orange tree since Florida is known as The Orange State (as oranges are its leading agricultural product). With its humid subtropical/tropical conditions, there are a wide range of choices for trees that will thrive in The Peninsula State. Nature Hills Nursery provides oft-requested trees such as Royal Empress and Purple Crepe Myrtle. Floridas climate is also ideal for the Haas Avocado, Mimosa and the delightful Blue Chinese Wisteria Tree. Nature hills Nursery provides the best nursery stock and exceptional service for these favored trees and others.

Selecting Florida Shrubs

Whether in the Florida Uplands, the Atlantic or East Gulf Coastal Plain, a wide array of fabulous shrubs can always be seen in abundance. Among residents of The Everglade State, Nature Hills Nursery has found that American Holly is a repeated favorite, with its glossy foliage and scarlet berries. Also popular is the Common Purple Lilac (which is far from common), and Blue Satin Rose of Sharon (with its spectacular blue blooms). These favored choices, and others, are available each year at Nature Hills Nursery.

At Nature Hills Nursery, our Florida guests most often request such popular perennials as climbing Clematis, fragrant Catmint, colorful Peony, bright Astilbe and many varieties of Lily. These favorite perennials, and more, are available at Nature Hills Nursery each year for The Land of Flowers.
